This article will be covering the main slate for NFL Week 8 beginning Sunday at 1:00pm. If you’re not familiar with this piece, it will be broken down into the following three sections: A cheat sheet with three tiers of players (each pricing tier based on DK positions/pricing), my favorite stacks to target and which players in said stacks I prefer, and lastly, my “Today’s Edge” section, which covers my edge play/fade of the slate (will update ~2 hours prior to lock), top touchdown picks, and the player I will have the most exposure to on the slate across all my lineups.


Players to consider for your Week 8 NFL GPPs. This isn’t a list of every player I will have, but rather the top guys I am including in my stacks/core, whether it be as a matchup-based play, ownership-based play, or even a leverage play, they will all be included in this core list.

Top Tier Jalen Hurts CMC Cooper Kupp Mark Andrews Jets
Top Tier Lamar Jackson Tony Pollard Ja’Marr Chase George Kittle Giants
Mid Tier CJ Stroud D’Andre Swift Zay Flowers Evan Engram Browns
Mid Tier Joe Burrow Isiah Pacheco George Pickens Dalton Schultz Steelers
Value Tier Des Ridder Breece Hall Tank Dell/Drake London Kyle Pitts Vikings
Value Tier Ken Pickett Kareem Hunt Noah Brown/Jon Mingo Trey McBride Rams


A common roster construction I like to use in large-field tournaments is stacking a quarterback with one or two of his skill position (RB, WR, TE) teammates and playing one or two guys from the opposition. I plan to attack Week 8 no differently. 

  • My top overall stack is the Texans at Panthers. A showdown of last draft’s top rookie QBs squaring off in Carolina. While I do think both QBs step up and play well, I prefer utilizing Stroud given his plethora of weapons. On the Carolina side, I can simply leverage Adam Thielen and get a majority of the Panthers’ air attack. A few options for pairing with Stroud: you can roll out single stacks with Collins, Dell or Schultz or double stack them. Dell’s big play ability is a preferred play in any doubles I run.
  • Other Stacks To Consider:
    • Ravens – Lamar: Zay / Andrews / OBJ
    • Bengals – Burrow: Chase / Higgins / Boyd
    • Eagles – Hurts: AJB / Goedert / Swift / Smith

Today’s Edge:

  • Touchdown Predictions:
    • Isiah Pacheco
    • George Pickens
  • Top Owned Plays on Slate (based on exposure across all my lineups):
    • QB – CJ Stroud
    • Skill Player – Breece Hall
  • Healy’s Slate Edge:
    • Tank Dell!
  • Cash Game Strategy: 
    • FD: Burrow: Pollard, Hall, Flowers
    • DK: Purdy: Pollard, Hall, Flowers
